The New Zealand Grand Prix Sprint Boat Club was formed by a group of businessmen who had a desire to take the sport to a professional level. Peter Boylan, Robin Grant, Warwick Jones, John McGregor and Peter Knight Snr, to name a few, got their ideas together and formed the NZ Grand Prix Sprint Boat Club, which was made up of Grand Prix Hydroplanes, Formula One Tunnels, and Unlimited Racing Runabouts.

Mixed class racing was exciting with many close battles between the legends like Peter Knight Snr ‘The Boss’, Garry Wallace ‘Autocrat’, Keith McGregor ‘Special Edition’, Peter Boylan ‘CRC’, Steve Hughes ‘Shell Nautilus’, Warwick Jones ‘Satins Pride’, ‘King Rat’ and ‘Radical Rat’, Robin Grant ‘Repco’, Graeme Weller ‘Rat Attack’, and more recently ‘G-Force’. The Story of the NZGP Hydroplane Drivers Club
